Almost proper Training again

20100328PM_directions.jpgAfter a long winter with some problems that detained me from full training, last weekend for the first time i had this feeling back to be able to train hard. I used the possibility to train with the Austrian junior team and a group from Norway in the woods around Fürstenfeld.

Saturday started up with a 5k Test (which i did not run at full speed) , cognitive tests and a test to evaluate the combination of pure running and map memory work. In the afternoon i participated in the last stage of Süd-Ost-Cup, a series of training competition in early season held in southern Austria.

On Sunday we had 2 map trainings, focusing on change of speed in the morning and direction in the afternoon.

My orienteering trainings ended on Monday with two sprints near Leupersdorf Spa. First sprint was used to get the start times for the chasing start to the 2nd sprint. Fun running sprint with opponents that near.

Thanks to the organizers for the good trainings.

The main purpose of the weekend was full focus on good orienteering and try to get back some confidence in my orienteering skills.
